Green Party Leader welcomes emergence of Wahine Network

Posted: December 2, 2010

Ms Turei says it’s the sort of initiative that is needed in what is a time of massive economic and political change affecting Maori women and their children.Te Whaainga Wahine was formed at a national hui in Thames over the weekend to help women speak out at local, national and iwi level.
You can’t necessarily say that because a leader or a political person is a woman that thy hold the kaupapa of women or particularly Maori women at the forefront of their mind. As a Maori woman in politics, what I always need is that strong political voice telling me when I do good and telling me when I do bad,” Ms Turei says.
